Grosvenor Casino, Bristol Review Continued...
Location Map and Nearby Casinos
Inside are a decent amount of slot machines, video poker, video blackjack and live roulette screens where players can bet on the current games. However, the minimum stake on the real roulette is only 50p a time, so there's no reason not to get involved for real.
There are around three blackjack tables and three poker; card dealers are generally always accommodating with new players, happy to explain the rules and payout options, but some of the dealers do hover on the side of being morose and serious, whilst the rest are generally jovial and engage in chat with the players to keep it informal. Waiters and waitresses are proactive and are always happy to bring drinks to the table, which are reasonably priced for a casino. Soft and hot drinks are free and there's no resentment from staff if you want to sit and
drink coffee all night.
One gripe is that the sole Blackjack table running the 'free double down and split' promotion is always, always backed up. Players will often nip out for a cigarette and 'hold' their spaces with a drink or wallet, which frustrates those waiting to get a seat at the table. That said, the dealers are very aware when there's a space and are happy to let you know when it's available.
There's always a pleasant farewell from the door staff on exit and it's generally a safe, clean place to gamble; low stakes, low pressure and just as easily somewhere to sit and meet with friends and watch sports on the big screens. Well worth being a member.
